Intelligence report

Hunt, hunt, kill, kill, joy, joy.

The best part of DS9 is that, because they can't really go off exploring all corners of the galaxy, they have to revisit the same characters and unresolved situations from previous episodes. One of these interesting revisitations is Garak, the Cardassian spy cum tailor: he's an interesting character because of his dark past (and present) and he certainly comes in handy at times, being chock full of Cardie DNA. And he's a dab hand at the odd assassination, too. Throw in O'Brien, a soldier with a dark past turned engineer, and Nog, a capitalist turned Starfleet idealist, and you have a pretty good mixture. Especially if you're turned on by violence, as these young people of today seem to be.

Be prepared for spooky lighting and lots of blood in this love child of DS9 and Friday the 13th.
